It’s hard to find a better landscape architect than Harold Leidner. I’d hazard to say that few, if any, can match his eye for how landscapes interact with their surroundings, and how to make modern design look and feel organic.

Burton Knight is a smart fellow — he has a horticulture degree from my alma mater, Texas A&M University — but all the wits in the world might not be enough to win a fight against Dallas City Hall.
While all of the homes in the Urban Reserve development are ecologically sensitive, you don’t have to have a gorgeous, modern home to go green.

Monday Morning Millionaire, Earth Day Version: Underground House/Bunker on Buckner Hits the Market Again Just in Time for, Well, Earth Day!
Welcome to the ultimate Green Structure in Dallas! That’s 2001 North Buckner Blvd, now listed with Vicki White of Dallas City Center. This is such a unique home, I am going to let Vicki do the talkin’ here, because she knows more about this home than anyone– maybe even the owners! 2001 Buckner was built in 1989, sits on, or I should say under, 1.84 acres, boasts 4561 square feet, three bedrooms, three baths, two living areas. Asking price: $1,150,000. Lowest utility bills in town. About the address – yes, the owners went to the city and applied for that number. Get it? 2001 A Space Odyssey! Here is another plus: the home has often referred to as a bunker, a perfect solution for those that are looking for the highest level of security. In addition, cameras mounted front and back give you 24/7 access to activity from any computer in the world. This coming after the disastrous week we had last might sway a few potential buyers!
It’s not allowed in some historic and conservation districts and HOAs for front yard use (well, at least not yet) but Conservation Grass is a gorgeous, sustainable option for yards that have lots of shade. It’s really customizable, too!

What I can guarantee is that if you bought 1223 Selva, which is on the market for $199,950, you will get a gorgeous lot in one of the best neighborhoods in Dallas.
All I can really say is that the current owner of 114 N. Windomere has some very diverse tastes. You can’t tell from the curb, but woo wee! This homeowner is not afraid of color!
